Quadrupel is La Trappe’s heaviest ale with a stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced. Malty sweet, slightly burnt, and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Quadrupel continues to ferment after bottling and offers aromas of banana, almond, vanilla and others.

jamaty (1230) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Anaranjada y algo turbia. Potente aroma a licor y naranja. En boca mucho cuerpo envuelto en un tono alcohólico bastante marcado, que envuelve matices dulces de bizcocho y frutales de naranja y melocotón. Muy potente y sabrosa,

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2015 Pours dark amber and clear with a modest offwhite head that leaves a thin lacing. Rich aroma of caramel, banana, herbs and some vanila. Full body, creamy feel, lively carbonation. Fruity taste of sweet licorice, bread, alcohol, spices and dark fruits. Long and malty finish.

sawbuck (439) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Complex aromas of sweet fruit, raisin, some toffee, and candies. Deep orange color, Full tan head fades quickly. Sweet candy up front. Not off putting..rich. Hints of sweet plum, and then spices. Alcohol burn comes next, warming. FInish is a slightly peppery bitterness, mixed with an echo of the sweet fruits from before. Carbonation cuts watery texture nicely. Nice.

Full bodied, dark and not too sweet. A beer that works great savoring it’s pure taste or next to a coffee or some dark chocolate for a sweet tooth.

AROMA: bananas, belgian yeast, honey, basically sweet notes - tropical fruits, raisins, maple syrup, some alcohol notes, caramel at the end APPEARANCE: ruby color, lots of foam which disappears fast, typical thing for quads, nice oily texture, good carbonation but beer losts it fast TASTE: awesome quad, full-bodied, thick, almost no alcohol notes in taste, bit spicy, sweet, salty, bitter - all in the same time, there’s also belgian caramel. Veeeeery enjoyable! I’ve immediately ordered another one. Almost perfect matching of taste and aroma. Definitely a must-try!
